    Spellbound is the follow up to Finders Keepers and has the main character Magic Knight trying to help various people from differing points in history back to the time they belong after a spell cast by Magic Knight's mentor Gimball the Wizard goes wrong.

    The game itself is an adventure game with a graphical front end, objects, other characters and the world can be interacted with via a windowed list of commands. This allows Magic Knight to examine objects, manipulate them, talk to characters and all the other adventure type actions you would want to perform. Also since the other characters from history are a little bit upset about being dragged from where they belong they need some looking after. Magic Knight has to command them to eat, sleep and be happy in order to help them out, if they die then Magic Knight fails.
